Halo: the Master Chief Collection, the compilation of all four numbered Halo games, is finally available on Xbox One. Our detailed review won't be live until tomorrow, but a lot of players already own the game and are enjoying it right now.
In celebration of the Master Chief Collection launch, Windows Central is hosting a special Twitch streaming event. Tonight you can both tune in to watch us play and chat with our staff and your fellow readers, and you can also actually play with us during the session! We'll be inviting stream viewers into our custom multiplayer games for some serious Slayer and other game types.
Update: The stream has ended. We managed to play a few games, but the broken multiplayer prevented us from enjoying the game as much as we hoped. Fingers crossed that 343 will get everything working right soon!
Halo multiplayer Twitch session details
Once the event starts, we'll be playing with you guys and streaming Halo: the Master Chief Collection for 90 minutes.
To watch or play along with us, just follow our my channel Twitch.tv/Eastxtwitch and then join us in the Twitch chat during the stream! You can watch the stream right here in this post, but you need to actually participate in the stream in order to receive a multiplayer invite. And obviously, you must own Halo: the Master Chief Collection if you want to play with the staff.
Tune in for your chance to play with the following Windows Central staffers. List subject to change.
- Daniel Rubino – Daniel Rubino
- Paul Acevedo – EastX
- Sam Sabri – Generalsham
Master Chief Collection's online multiplayer features are in a rough state at launch. Hopefully you guys can join us without too many issues.
How to view the stream and play along with us
To participate, just follow me at Twitch.tv/Eastxtwitch and tune in during the stream. You can watch the stream right here in this post, but you need to actually participate in the stream chat to be invited to our multiplayer session.
What's the best way to experience Twitch? If you don't have a PC, you can get the Xbox One or Xbox 360 Twitch app and watch from the comfort of your couch. Or grab the unofficial app Livegaming for Windows Phone. It has plenty of great features, including the ability to chat along with your fellow viewers. Annoyingly, you'll have to add our channel to your favorites from the Twitch website, outside of the app.
Feel free to show up a few minutes before the stream starts to help with testing. The stream should last about 90 minutes. And don't forget to leave a comment on this and all of our Xbox One gaming stories!

Weekend streams resume this Saturday with Pinball FX2!
Regular readers and viewers know that we stream gameplay from a different downloadable Xbox One title every week. These streams are a great chance to see a game you might have missed, plus you can meet and chat with your fellow readers and select members of the Windows Central staff.
This Saturday, November 15 I'll be streaming Pinball FX2 from Zen Studios. Watch the stream to see the new South Park tables and maybe even additional tables. Will I beat my high scores and those of Daniel Rubino, our resident pinball expert? Tune in at 8pm Central (6pm Pacific, 9pm Eastern) to find out!
We also love to give out prizes during our weekend streams, and this weekend will be no different. This time you can win South Park Pinball tables for Xbox One, Playstation 4, and Steam. The odds of winning are great, so don't miss your chance to score free pinball tables!
